Leech Lake, MN (PRWEB) August 18, 2004

Singer/songwriter Kiki Webb of dancing Light has a new claim to fame. She’s becoming a internet chat room icon. A college photo of Kiki, appearing in her online biography, has been snagged off the website and is being used to replace the popular acronyms LOL and ROFL (“laughing out loud” & “rolling on the floor laughing”) in chat rooms around the world.

“While we were checking the July website statistics for, we were noticing an unusually high number of hits to Kiki’s bio page from college,” ( remarks musician Greg Webb, the male half of the contemporary acoustic duo, dancing Light. “We couldn’t figure out what had happened to Kiki in college that compelled these visitors to click over. Why was that particular page so incredibly popular?”

Google had the answer.

“Apparently, if you type the phrase ‘rofl.gif’ into the Google image search engine, Kiki’s photo comes up right at the top of the results page,” says Greg. “People are downloading a photo of Kiki laughing uncontrollably while lying on the floor.”


“Instead of using LOL or ROFL to respond to something amusing said in a chat room, they’re posting Kiki’s picture,” says Greg.

How does dancing Light musician Kiki Webb react to her photo flying around internet chat rooms? Kiki responds, “I did what any self-respecting musician would do – I put a link to a free mp3 download of our song, ‘Yes It Does’ next to my photo!” (
